Update: Wizz Air came with another press release a few hours after the first one saying that the list of countries and regions included in the red zone with a high risk of coronavirus can be found here.
Initial news: While the Romanian authorities have been contradicting themselves in the last 24 hours about adding new countries to the red and yellow zones affected by the coronavirus epidemic, which also translates into restrictions for the people who come from these areas (quarantine or isolation at home), Wizz Air announced in a press release that the red zone was indeed expanded and now includes regions in Germany, France and Spain, alongside the whole of Italy.
The red zone incudes the countries or region with high numbers of confirmed coronavirus cases. According to the measures enforced by the Romanian authorities, all the people who enter Romania coming from those areas will be quarantined.
The yellow zone, which includes countries and regions with medium risk of coronavirus, was also expanded to include the rest of the regions in Germany, France and Spain, according to the same source. People coming from the yellow zone will be placed under isolation at home, according to the protocol.
Italy, Spain, Germany and France host large communities of Romanians.
“Starting March 11, 2020, the Romanian authorities have implemented measures aimed at curbing the coronavirus epidemic. These measures will remain in effect until further notice. Passengers traveling from high risk areas (red zone) will be quarantined for 14 days in special centers when they arrive in Romania. This applies to passengers traveling from all over Italy, China’s Hubei province, certain areas of South Korea, the Hauts de France, Ile de France, Grand Est, Bourgogne Est Comte and Auvergne Rhones Alpes in France, the Baden Wurttemberg regions, Bayern and Nordrhein Westfalen from Germany and the Madrid region from Spain,” Wizz Air announced, attaching the following list:
To help limit the epidemic, Wizz Air canceled its flights from Memmingen / Munich West, Dortmund, Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg, Madrid, Nuremberg, Karlsruhe / Baden-Baden, Frankfurt Hahn to Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, Timisoara, on March 11, 2020.
